(i)
All questions are compulsory.(ii) There are
30
questions in total.Questions
1
to
8
carry one mark each,Questions
9
to

Question 1
 ( 1.0 marks)
State two characteristic properties of nuclear force.
Solution:
Properties of nuclear force:(i) Nuclear force is the strongest force in nature.(ii) Nuclear force is only effective on a very short range.
Question 2
 ( 1.0 marks)
How does the angle of minimum deviation of a glass prism vary, if the incident violet light is replaced withred light?
Solution:
δ
violet
> δ
red
Thus, when incident violet light is replaced with red light, the angle of minimum deviation of a glassdecreases.
Question 3
 ( 1.0 marks)
The instantaneous current and voltage of an a.c. circuit are given by
i
= 10 sin 300
A and
= 200 sin 300
V.What is the power dissipation in the circuit?
Solution:

It is given that:
i
= 10 sin 300
A
= 200 sin 300
V
 
i
0
= 10 A and
0
= 200 V
Average power dissipation =
0
i
0
= 200 × 10 = 2000 W
Question 4
 ( 1.0 marks)
Why should the spring/suspension wire in a moving coil galvanometer have low torsional constant?
Solution:
The moving coil galvanometer has low torsional constant (restoring torque per unit twist) to make it verysensitive.
Question 5
 ( 1.0 marks)
Why does the bluish colour predominate in a clear sky?
Solution:
A blue colour has a shorter wavelength than red. Therefore, blue colour is scattered much more strongly.Hence, the sky looks blue.
Question 6
 ( 1.0 marks)
Which orientation of an electric dipole in a uniform electric field would correspond to stable equilibrium?
Solution:
When the electric dipole is in the direction of the electric field, it is said to be in stable equilibrium.
Question 7
 ( 1.0 marks)
Two lines,
 A
and
 B
, in the plot given below show the variation of de Broglie wavelength, λ versus,where
is the accelerating potential difference, for two particles carrying the same charge.Which one of two represents a particle of smaller mass?
Solution:
2/3/2011Subjective Test Paper - Physics - Meritnmeritnation.com//tx4ggrzWFFjnmFNN2/22
 
(Slope of λ and graph)Slope of B > Slope of ATherefore, line
 B
represents a particle of smaller mass.
Question 8
 ( 1.0 marks)
State the reason why GaAs is most commonly used in making of a solar cell.
Solution:
GaAs (gallium arsenide) is most commonly used in the making of a solar cell because it absorbs relativelymore energy from the incident solar radiations, being of relatively higher absorption coefficient.
Question 9
 ( 2.0 marks)
Draw a labelled ray diagram of an astronomical telescope in the near point position. Write the expressionfor its magnifying power.
Solution:
Astronomical telescope in the near point position:Magnifying power,
Question 10
 ( 2.0 marks)
The following figure shows the variation of intensity of magnetisation versus the applied magnetic fieldintensity,
 H 
 j
for two magnetic materials A and B:(a) Identify the materials A and B.
